Exhibition: Pipes that Bind, Faces in Spaces by Paul Onditi, Sept. 11 – Oct. 8 2014 @ Goethe Institut

PIpes that Bind
Pipes often are channels moving from the supplier to the supplied and vice versa. Some of these pipes not only supply but they actually bind as well. They need not be physical pipes – the pipes can be social, political or even economical.

The exhibition series Sasa Nairobi is the basis of Goethe Institut Nairobi work in the field of contemporary art. The aim is to work with artists from Kenya that have an advanced and innovative approach and often commission them to produce a new work. Since 2008, Goethe Institut has exhibited around 40 artists, the last being a show by Jackie Karuti.

The series continues with Paul Onditi, a former Kuona Trust resident. His work examines the cyclical nature of human experience and behavior, encapsulated in the oft-touted expression “what goes around, comes around.” The exhibition Pipes that Bind, Faces in Places explores the existence of both visible and invisible pipes round the globe that are binding in one way or the other.

Exhibition Opening: Thursday, 11th September 2014
Venue: Goethe Institut Auditorium
Time: 7.00 pm

Exhibition: Monday to Friday, 12th September to 8th October 2014
Time: 1.00 pm to 6.00 pm
Admission: free

Paul Onditi was featured in last months British Airways in-flight Magazine, highlife as one of the four East African Artists to Buy

Book Launch/Panel Discussion: (Re)membering Kenya, Jan. 24 2014 @ Goethe Institut Auditorium

remembering Kenya Vol 2
Date & Time: January 24, 2014 at 6 pm
Venue: Goethe-Institut, Auditorium
Admission free

(Re)membering Kenya Vol. 2 – Interrogating, Marginalization and Governance provides important insights into the directions that Kenya can take to address the root causes of inequalities, election related violence and exclusion. It suggests a path for sustainable peace in Kenya.

The public lecture series was a critical response to the crisis after the 2007 general elections in Kenya. The talks provided space for intense discussions between academics, civil society and the public. As a result of the initial conversations, the book (Re)Membering Kenya Volume 1 which focused on Identity, Culture and Freedom was published.
Later another round of talks was held and this second volume on Interrogating Marginalization and Governance has been published recently by Twaweza Communications and was edited by George Gona and Mbugua wa-Mungai.

In cooperation with Ford Foundation and Twaweza Communications.

Film Premiere: The Two Sudan’s, Nov. 28 2013 @ Goethe-Institut

the two sudans
Date: 28th November 2013
Venue: Goethe-Institut Auditorium
Time: 6.30 pm
Entry: Admission free

On 9th July 2011 the largest African nation was split into two: Sudan and South Sudan. Preceding that date, a group of young filmmakers from Sudan and Germany felt the need to witness the impact of this unique, historical moment with their cameras. Driven by the interest to understand how these events are affecting the lives of the people in North and South, the Sudanese directors started to follow their protagonists – sometimes friends or family members – asking questions about their lives, hopes and dreams. What will change in your future life? What does home mean to you? How can you reach your personal goals? How do you define your identity?

With the support of the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung and others, an on-going web-documentary was created, embarking on a visually and emotionally capturing journey into Sudan and South Sudan. From a place with virtually no film infrastructure, young film makers are telling the stories of those whose voices are never heard. In cooperation with Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung.
